How big a sealed box do these puppies need? Ain't got much room but really want 2 of these.

Think I'm gonne power'em with an SX1250.1 amp

Maybe even an Orion 2500D but it'll probably be the SX :confused:

What size 'woofer?

That should answer your question. I would reccomend L7 15"(dual 2 ohm, so you can drop to 1 ohm on amp) Or, if you don't have the money, go L7 12".

If your going with L7's, I'd assume your into more SPL, so I'd go with a large, ported box with a lot of port area. If it's straight SPL, tune it higher than normal too.

Sorry. I'm thinkin og 12es and I just haven't got room for 2 ported. kicker says minimum venhted for just 1 is 1.75 and I want 2.. Ain't all for SPL but I heard the L7s are ok enough SQ too?

L7s will get loud in a sealed box, but they dont really come alive til u port them. how much room do u actually have?

Hard to say. The way I'm planning it is to have the subs poking in to the cabin og my car.. got a hatchback. Which means putting the cones level with the top of the back seat. Problem is I gotta fit a SX900.4 and a SX1250.1 beneath the box and they have to have a little room to breathe too you know
